Weigh Your Options: Listing Agents vs. Cash Sales

Even in a sellers market like New York, it’s smart to look at your options and see what will actually help you best reach your goals with the sale of your house. While you may be able to get a higher “top line” sales price listing with a local The Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens agent, that doesn’t always boil down to more money in your pocket or less headache. Dive into the details below to compare your options.
